Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.
Show & Tell

Please join us at a special time, 6:30 pm on July 13th, for our guild meeting and annual July potluck dinner. We will meet at our regular meeting place, First Presbyterian Church at 6th & Nebraska, Sioux City, IA.
Please note that the current newsletter has an incorrect start time for our meeting; it is 6:30 rather than the 7:00 in the newsletter.
Bring a dish to share (salad, main dish, dessert) and your table service. After the meeting we will play games and have show and tell. We'll see you there.
Our June 8th Guild meeting will be back in its regular location at 6th & Nebraska at 7:00 pm. You will be an important part of the night's program: you are asked to bring either your first quilt or an "ugly" quilt to share with the group, along with the quilt's story or any lessons learned in the making of the quilt.
The Omaha Quilt Guild will put on their annual show June 18th-20th. Visit their website: http://www.omahaquiltersguild.org/ for details.
The entry form for our own quilt show is included with the June newsletter that you received by mail or email. Guild members may start entering those quilts now and up until the August 10th deadline.
Our May 11th Guild meeting will be at Redeemer Lutheran Church on 3402 S Lakeport for this one night only. Join us at 7:00 pm for a program presented by Cathy Habermann, a cross-stitch designer and owner of Hands on Design. For a preview of her charming and colorful designs, visit her website http://handsondesign.biz. Bring your wallet to the meeting because she will have some projects available for us to purchase.
Quilt Show season is upon us, so try to attend the Tulip Festival quilt show May 14-16 in Orange City, put on by the Sioux Prairie Quilt Guild. See our current newsletter for details.
And keep working on those quilts for our show on September 26-27, 2015. Members will find information in their newsletter this month about who can enter quilts, choosing an entry category, and making raffle items for our fundraiser at the quilt show.
We'll see you on May 11th!
